How did you find about the Italian Social Club?

My photo was taken in Venice a very crowded touristy city where you have to search for places away from the crowds. I like what Thomas Man said about Venice: "This was Venice, the flattering and suspect beauty this city, half fairy tale and half tourist trap, in whose insalubrious air the arts once rankly and voluptuously blossomed, where composers have been inspired to lulling tones of somniferous eroticism."

Of course, you don't have to be Italian to join our fun events, but if you are, please share which area of Italy you are originally from.

My parents were both born in Italy. Both were born in Sicily. Dad came as a child but spoke perfect Italian laced with lots of dialect. Mom spoke both Italian and Sicilian dialect. I learned to speak from them both talking at home to each other and to my older brothers and sisters.

What type of events are you interested in? (food-related, dinners, Italian language, travel, wine-related, etc.)

Food and wine related dinners and anything where I can get with Italian Americans and socialize.
